HR Law AU Masterclass Brochure_Draft
Each speaker demonstrated great depth of knowledge but kept
to the salient points for the audience. The round-table exercise was a relevant case study and the host guided us through the aspects promptly and expertly.
The breaks were the right amount of time and the close of the day succinct!
Highly recommend the experience.
